Impossible. That could not happen. All planes have a range, flight controllers, the pilot, the co pilot all know this. The co pilot is the flight engineer and his job is to ask for the fuel to cover the distance with enough of a margin of error for bad weather and diversions. I have worked in a major airport for 8 years. This is just impossible.

Where do you land if there is an emergency during a trans-atlantic flight?


You're stuck with a water landing (ditching). Hopefully at altitude the pilot can see a ship and make the landing in the vicinity of the ship for quick rescue. It so rare for a plane to lose power to all engines though that you should never hear of such an incident. Depending on the route, however, Bermuda may be within gliding distance.

Hmm! Anyone on YA ever flown on a prop passenger plane like the DC3?


Yes. There are propeller driven airliners in service today, mostly on short routes.

Scared of plane crash?


The safest time to fly is after such an incident because all pilots are double checking themselves to make sure it doesn't happen to them.

Why no whole-plane parachute system on commercial flights?


Aircraft too heavy. Weight is extremely valuable/expensive and the weight of a parachute system would be too heavy and costly, sacrificing room for paying passengers.

Is there any advantage to passenger jets carrying fuel in sealed tanks in their wings?


As the wings are lifted by differences in air pressure and gravity acts on the fuselage, the extra fuel load in the wings won't really affect the curvature. Rather, this is for the large storage capacity (volume) of the wings, and the safer option that your fuel tanks are outboard, rather than crew / passengers sitting directly on top of a "belly" tank. In event of a fuel-fire or crash, there is still a chance of fire being extinguished, or fuel-laden wings breaking away in a major crash. The spread-out mass of the wings also adds to stability by increasing the inertia.
